ABOUT THE ARTIST

Tiffany Loy employs a weaver’s approach to sculpture where she explores the fundamental relationships between elements of materiality such as colour, structure and tension. The minuscule details in Loy's work invite viewers to take a closer look and indulge in the act of observing. Often working with experimental processes and materials, her practice draws from techniques in weaving but expands upon it with new possibilities. Her work pushes the expectation of textiles through form and function and make us rethink our associative use for them.
